Fucidin Cream On Lips
I had a red, flaky rash around my mouth, doc gav me Fucidin h cream, wk l8r+dryness gone but still red altho has faded, how will redness go? Thank u
Rash around mouth: A rash by the sides of the nose that is flaky could likely be seborrheic dermatitis which is very common and can be managed but never cured. Fucidin h has a topical steroid and can be effective, but be careful because steroid use around the mouth can cause or exacerbate perioral dermatitis, which is easily recognized and treated by a dermatologist. ...Read more
I had cut in corner of mouth. Antifungal cream didn't heal. Fusidic acid cream's working (3 days using). When can I stop using it? Can I kiss my bf?
Cuts are other thing: Angular cheilosis or cuts in the corner of the mouth can be fungal, can be caused by a vitamin deficiency, can be caused by an overclosed bite or dentition, or a number of problems. If the antifungal cream was used for 2 weeks and did not work may assume that it is the wrong medication or it is not fungal. An Oral Surgeon should be seen. ...Read more
Had cut in corner of mouth. Antifungal cream didn't heal. Fusidic acid cream's working (3 days using now). When can I stop using it? Can I kiss my bf?
When it is healed: Keep using the cream and don't kiss until the cut heals. Probably will take 5-7 days. If it doesn't heal or keeps breaking open, see your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Unlikely combination: I don't know of any reported interactions between fucidin cream and the common skin lighteners, which usually use hydroquinone as their active ingredient. But I've never run into a situation where both were used at the same time on the same area of skin. Dark spots are not usually infected, and vice versa. ...Read more

What is the best nappy/barrier cream for babies as my little one was prescribed even with Fucidin but did not do the tricks, he screams in pain?
Bad diaper rash?: Rashes are hard to describe in words, so for bad diaper rashes, visits to the doctor may be needed. Haven't heard of Fucidin (websites say it is an antibacterial cream; not in the U.S. Perhaps). For babies with bad diaper rashes, we know that not wearing a diaper will help. Zinc oxide creams help, but one must not rub the skin when trying to clean the butt. Anti-yeast creams may be added, etc... ...Read more

How long does it take for the Fucidin h cream to clear your rash? It's been 5 days and the rash doesn't look better, if not more irritated and itchy.
Fucidin cream and ointment are used to treat skin infections caused by staphylococcal bacteria, including those that are resistant to penicillin antibiotics. These may include the following:
Infected hair follicles (folliculitis).
Skin infection around the nails (paronychia).
You should have already seen improvement. You need a different medication. ...Read more
Not for fungus: Most diaper rashes are fungal in origin and Fucidin cream is an antibiotic so it would not necessarily help the rash unless there was a bacterial component to it, irregardless of any open sores. If the open sores are infected, this cream can help and may also help prevent them from getting infected. Get the rash diagnosed to assure the best treatment if it persists. Good luck to you. ...Read more
My lo has really bad nappy rash and sudocream not helping. I have got some Fucidin cream prescibed for her face can I use this on her?
Yes: Fucidin is a topical antibiotc and if it can be used on the face it can be used in the nappy area. If the rash is bacterial then Fucidin will help. If it is yeast it will not. You can wash her nappy area with a dilute solution of baking soda and water (1 tsp baking soda in 1 cup water) and use an antifungal cream...Like micatin or tinactin (tolnaftate) for yeast. ...Read more

Cord: You are right. This is a long time for a cord to remain on. You can clean it with soap and water down to the base of the cord. Your doctor may want to use silver nitrate to dry up the base and encourage it to come off. All the best. ...Read more

Can you put fucidin cream on abscess? I have one at the crease of where my upper thigh meets my right buttock. Its like a very painful but not white.
Open or closed?: An abscess is a collection of pus. If you have a skin abscess and it has not yet opened, no medicine on the skin will help. If it is swollen but pus has not formed, then moist heat can sometimes help. In many cases it is wise for a doctor to drain it--see one! If it HAS opened, then the drainage of pus is the only thing needed for it to start healing; keep it clean and open as best you can. ...Read more
I'm suffering paronychia in my finger. I'm soaking it in warm water, applying Fucidin cream, no healing for 5days noe. Plz advice.
Allergic reaction on my face and now I have a dark patches on my face. My doctor gave me Fucidin h and epaderm cream is this the best thing to use?
talk to your doctor:
You are receiving a topical medication that contains Hydrocortisone and antibiotic.Is it possible that this is not an allergic reaction.
Sometimes after an allergic skin reaction you can develop increased skin pigmentation or dark patches which will improve over time.
You need to discuss the diagnosis and treatment with your physician. ...Read more
NO: Use vaseline or Aquaphor. Gently wash with clean water. ...Read more
Herpes on lower leg - treatment dicloxacillin 4 times a day and Fucidin cream - that sound like a good treatment?
Herpes: First of all, you present no evidence that this is herpes simplex. Not even a description of the rash. There's no way to tell you what you have on your leg without seeing it. The dermatologist's basic and best talent is to use his or her eyeballs to make a diagnosis. And while herpes on the leg would be rare, it would require medicine specific for herpes simplex. ...Read more
Am having eczema recurrently. Rashes under skin & itching. Can I take defcort for long. Have used betnovate & fucidin still they recur. Any stronger cream?
No: Those creams are strong enough, please don't self medicate, follow up with your doctor/dermatologist, eczema isn't just treated with topical treatment, other factors weigh in, skin care is important, triggers for exacerbations, diet, hydration and others. Potent local steriod creams can have the same deleterious effects if not used under doctor's supervision ...Read more

Had cyst on bikini line from an infected ingrown hair. I used Fucidin cream to relieve the pain. Now there's a large ball under skin. Needs draining?
Throw away Fucidin: This should not be used this way. It will NOT relieve pain. You are not describing a condition which calls for any antibiotic. If you can squeeze out the contents os this cyst, GO AHEAD. When you empty it of sebum and pus it will heal better and feel better. If you have significant distress, a DR can drain it for you. Sometimes cortisone is injected into these to shrink them. ...Read more
